If you think David Bowie ’s The Next Day was one of the best albums of 2013, you’re not alone. Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has written a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter in which he praises the release, noting he spent all his spare time listening to it during rehearsals for NIN’s recent tour.

“It was a puzzle -- it didn't sound like how I thought it might sound,” he writes. “I thought maybe it was a bit conservative sonically. But over several months, it made its way into my playlist on countless bus rides; when I'm sitting alone to listen to music, I reach for The Next Day .”

Reznor also credits the Thin White Duke as the “most important figure” that inspired him to become a musician. “To a kid growing up in rural Pennsylvania, out of reach of college radio and on the wrong side of the Internet -- in isolation -- to see this alien creep in, this larger-than-life character who was smart…he's been a consistent reference point as somebody who is uncompromising,” he explains. “He has found an audience yet challenges that audience and continues moving forward in a fearless way.”
